July 26, 2021

Dr. Maryfield is a hematologist and oncologist joining Schneck Cancer Center. He received his medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine and completed an internship and residency at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. Maryfield also completed a fellowship in hematology and oncology at Indiana University School of Medicine.
Where did you grow up? I grew up in Bloomfield, Indiana, which is a small town 90 minutes west of Seymour.
Please tell us about your family. I married my amazing wife Cara in 2018. We have been together since I was a freshman in high school. She works as a CPA. We don’t have children, but love our cat Gracie and recently added an Appaloosa horse named Remi to the family. I am lucky to have great parents. I am the middle child with two sisters. I enjoy spending time with my three nephews and three nieces.
What hobbies do you enjoy? My wife and I enjoy going out to eat, hiking, concerts, and playing board games with friends. I also play tennis and golf.
Where is the one place you would like to visit?  I would love to visit Bora Bora!
When did you know you wanted to be a physician? When I was in high school, I asked Dr. Stephen Cullen in Washington, Indiana if I could shadow his family medicine group to see if I wanted to pursue a career in medicine. After this experience, I knew I wanted to be a physician. By my second year of medical school, I was inspired to become a hematologist/oncologist.
What do you like about practicing medicine?  I truly enjoy getting to know my patients and their families, helping them understand their disease, guiding them to the best treatment options, and supporting them through what is oftentimes one of the most stressful periods of their life. The specialty of hematology/oncology is changing rapidly with new and exciting treatments for our patients.  It’s a complex specialty in many ways and I enjoy the challenge and lifelong learning it requires.
What attracted you to work at Schneck?  During my fellowship, I learned that Schneck was looking to hire a hematologist/oncologist. Dr. Olivarez and Dr. Sgroi invited me to spend several days with them in clinic. I absolutely loved the experience and knew this was where I wanted to practice. The patients were delightful. The nurses and staff were warm and inviting. The facilities are very nice. I was also impressed by the collegial nature of the physician colleagues I will be working closely with. Thanks to the outstanding care Dr. Olivarez and Dr. Sgroi have provided over the years, Schneck is well respected in the hematology/oncology community and I look forward to continuing that tradition. I could not be more excited to join the Schneck Medical Center.
Dr. Maryfield joins the Schneck Cancer Center in August. For more information, please call the Schneck Cancer Center at 812-522-0480.
